A Rare Focus

Sometimes you wait

just long enough, patient

to let the camera focus,

allow the wind to pause,

and your hand to steady

before taking the shot….

This tiny bit of beauty,

a blend of watercolors,

lavender, orange, spring-green,

each smooth line, 

each nuanced hue,

all that define one unique

flower becomes this

perfect moment.

I think of this often,

perhaps too much,

the stilling of moments,

but in this rush-to-survive,


binge-without-savoring life,

it is these rare and quiet times

when everything else blurs

but the one thing before 

my eyes that gives me purpose,

….Oh, God, how much more 

I desire to abide in that kind

of focus with You.
